BlackBerry CurveToday RIM officially announced the new BlackBerry Curve (aka the BlackBerry 8300). The Curve is the smallest and lightest full QWERTY BlackBerry smartphone, featuring a 2 megapixel camera, enhanced media player and high-performance browser (not quite sure what “high-performance browser” means, but it sounds cool). The microSD expansion slot supports 2GB cards today, and will support the 4GB cards when they become available.

The Curve also comes with a new desktop media manager, the Roxio Media Manager for BlackBerry. This lets you organize media files on your computer, create MP3 music files from CDs, create playlists, and automatically copy or convert pictures, music and videos for playback on the Curve.

The media player on the BlackBerry Curve has been refined, allowing users to search for music by simply typing the title, genre, artist or album name. Videos can also be played in full screen mode.
